Cover with blankets, sheets, duvets, camo-nets, cardboard triangles etc to create a great little outside den. Uses fewer hubs and sticks and is a great entry-point into hubs, and a fun family project.
Short: 730mm (x24)Long: 837mm (x6)
This creates a hexagon footprint approx 1.5m in diameter with a maximum height in the middle of about 1.1m. The 3m x 3m camo-net will cover this size nicely.
If you want to make it bigger or smaller, see 'Calculating other sizes' below.
This calculator is helpful for calculating the inner diameter and outer diameter of the hexagon.The 'Side Length' is your Short stick length + 88mm.The ‘Aphothem’ is the radius for the inner circular diameter.The ‘Center to Vertex’ is the radius for the outer circular diameter.Heights:The approximate height one layer up = 0.825 x Side length.The approximate height of the point in the middle = 1.352 x Side length.Short and Long stick lengths:Once you've got dimensions you're happy with put the Short stick length (Side Length - 88mm) into our dome calculator here to get the Long stick length.
If you want to source your own cover, select the 'Without camo-net' option.
Comes with 4ft broom handles which you cut to the size, see guidance above.
Pre-drilling a 2-3mm pilot hole for the wood screws is recommended to prevent splitting.
If the dome will be outside for any length of time, it's a good idea to treat the wood with an exterior varnish / paint or oil.
